Background & Experience
Evan co-founded Shames Makovsky Realty Company in 1971 with his partner, and uncle, Motty Shames. Initially, the company specialized in the commercial brokerage of industrial and investment properties. However, in response to financial conditions in the mid 1980’s, Evan formed Shames Makovsky Mortgage Company which specializes in “non-conventional” financing. The mortgage company led the company into the equity markets and consequently into development. Working with Motty, Evan took the company from a small industrial brokerage firm to a full-service commercial realty company offering brokerage, development, property management, and lending.

Evan is the managing partner/member and part owner of over 50 different ownership groups which own various real estate investments (most of which are owned debt free). All of the real estate investments are commercial, industrial, office and investment properties. He has sold, leased, developed, and funded many notable projects, some of which include the Sage Building, Marriott Residence Inn, the historic Colorado Business Bank building, and the Mapleton Distribution Center.

Evan and his wife Evelyn (Evi) have three grown children, Noah and his wife Arinn, Dorit and her husband Aryeh and Elana and her husband Joshua and nine grandchildren, Liat, Kyra, Nili, Ezra, Aliza, Max, Isaac, Charlotte and Jack.
